Default Spike a sellout for embracing Knicks killer?

Knicks fans or sports fans in general..

How does Spike get such a FREE pas for being buddy buddy with the modern day Knicks dream shatterer?

Their connection came before the Knicks were any kind of contender.....but during the Ewing era of the 90s....MJ repeatedly shitted on Knicks...blocked them from advancing in playoffs and just wiped his ass with whoever happened to be starting at SG in a Knicks jersey



Why hasn't Spike ever called out for this?


Don't think bulls knicks was a rivalry pre or post Jordan but as a sports fan......and a serious one....how is Spike allowed to skate on this?

Jay Z is a Knick fan. Why do you give him a pass?

So he is supposed to give up the opportunity to be friends with Michael Jordan because he is a Knicks fan?

jay z IS a new yorker & isn't a sports fan.....sitting in those seats in the garden was part of a marketing plan that worked

I remember sitting with my boss during a knicks heat playoff game at garden..and jay flashed on the screen..and he said who's that guy?

that was same year knicks lost to spurs in finals...

years and millions of albums sold later , and public marriage to pop superstar wife....and ny anthem played live during world series..

EVERYBODY knows who he is

because there are things more important than basketball believe it or not. spike lee was one of the only black indie filmmakers in the 90s and has done a lot for the film industry in that regard. i can't remember which movie, but one of his bigger projects he was lacking funding, which the studios wouldn't give him. he called up MJ (oprah and others) and flat out told it like it was ... needed money. MJ wrote a check on the spot.

that > basketball.

Everyone who was a Knick fan didnt hate MJ. They just mutually acknowledged he was the best player in the world. The garden fans knew it back then. They never booed MJ either. So they understood Spike's relationship with MJ, business and personally.

it was Malcolm X....and Spike gave MJ, and all the other personal contributors credit in the end credits....in fact...think there is a dream team bus shot in the end credits of Magic and Michael.

Cosby, Oprah,etc...

they got their money back on the back end.

i understand that but I have old articles from Ebony , and spike is TRUE BLUE and ORANGE knicks fan..first thing he did when he got film money was buy season tickets...even before buying a home...
how do you bleed orange and blue and be best friends with guy who PERSONALLY roadblocked any title plans?

Some Knicks fans also want to claim MJ as a NY product seeing as he was born there. so they went with that as well.

Because of what you said there yourself. He is his personal friend. He has a relationship with him OFF THE COURT. What happens on the court is different.

You can root for a guy to be happy and have success every where else in life, and at the same time root for him to lose to your team in the game of basketball when your team plays them. It's pretty simple really.

If you have two favorite teams or players, when they play against each other you may root for one over the other. Big deal...you are still allowed to like both teams.

Also, if you're mad about Spike being friends with MJ...

then how about...

1. Lebron being friends with Durant

Or

2. Any player being friends with a player on different team

Cause at the end of the day, it's just a game. Holding out feuds is childish over and immature. No one should take sports that seriously.

This, exacty, mate.

OPs mindset is the kind that leads to fights, riots, arrests and even murders over SPORTING CONTESTS.

They arent that big a deal, mates. The people who take them too seriously usually have issues and are unbalanced or mentally disturbed. Just look at Clippersfan86.

Jay-Z tried to purchase an ownership share in the Knicks that was rebuffed by Jim Dolan, he then went on to the Nets. Prokhorov did the same thing actually, Dolan once again got involved and insisted that the Rangers were also part of the deal. The Nets will always be second fiddle

Additionally Jordan is very close friends with Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley as well
